"It was the winter holiday and I was back in Togo having a kickabout with friends when my phone rang.One of the boys answered it and said, 'Manu, it's Arsene for you'. 'Arsene who?' I said. 'Arsene Wenger', he said. 'Get out of it', I said, and grabbed the phone off him. But then I heard the voice. 'Allo'. F*****g hell. It is Arsene Wenger!"

Wenger Hoping Win Will Convince Henry

Arsene Wenger is hoping Arsenal's win against Real Madrid will convince Thierry Henry to stay with The Gunners for another 4 years.

Wenger said: "I hope that the ability our young team showed with their performance tonight will convince Thierry to stay. For the young players it is important their leader stays."

"We do not want to take two steps back because our best player leaves us. I hope this result is important for him."

The most likely place Henry will go if he leaves id Barcelona. Barcelona Vice-President Ferran Soriano though says that Barca do not need to add to their squad, even if it is King Henry.

"There are a lot of rumours in this industry. We are very happy with the players we have," Soriano told BBC Radio Five Live.

"He is an amazing player. Everybody would like to have Thierry Henry in their team - all the teams in the world" Soriano added.

"But he has a team and a contract, and we respect that. One day if he is available we would talk - but not now."
